The exhibition Omissions is a culmination of work created during and after my residency in Scotland in the spring of 2016. I was selected for the Hospitalfield Interdisciplinary Residency, and used the time to respond to place and the meaning I found in the rocks of the surrounding area. I traveled to particularly important geologic sites such as Siccar Point at the North Sea, and studied other ephemera as it applied to my memory of the visit, including smells, weather, and even the bruises I got in traversing the landscape. In Omissions, I make connections to the story in the rocks and the telling of our own stories: leaving out some details, coloring the narrative, and the eventual erosion from our memories. These geologic sites helped me to see our stories much like a book, layered and lithified, but altogether a glimpse that is bright and tangible one minute and grayed out the next.
